As the game has effectively been banned in Australia due to a recent refused classification ruling by the Australian Classifications Board and an unwillingness from the creators to compromise the game for censorship's sake, this latest news on EA's Syndicate is probably not going to be very useful to most of you, but the publisher has confirmed a playable demo is due this month on Xbox 360, PC and PS3 that will feature 4-player co-operative action.
The demo is destine for Origin for PC, PSN for PlayStation 3 and XBL for Xbox 360 (oddly limited to Gold subscribers only on xbox), however if you're browsing from an Australian account and address, you're not going to be able to see it on any of these.
The Syndicate co-op demo will feature one of the nine missions in the game, all of which can be played with up to four players and many of which have been reimagined from the original hit game. In this mission called Western Europe, gamers must team up and infiltrate Cayman Global, assassinate Colonel Enrico Gabron, steal his technology blueprints and force his people back across the Atlantic. The odds of success look promising with Cayman Global badly weakened after their war against Eurocorp, but it won’t come easy.
While we probably shouldn't explicitly instruct on circumvention of such region restrictions, we're sure many Aussies will want to check this one out, so feel free to share your methods with our users in the comments.
